Wacky Kids Krates

We currently are partnering with the Arts Council of Westerville on their Wacky Kids Krates.  These kits include two gourd projects submitted by the Ohio Gourd Society.  What a wonderful gift that will keep your child busy creating something of their own to make them proud and possibly offer them a new hobby to continue in the future.

Today I visited the Ohio Hills Folk Festival, and it was by far one of my top favorites. It is the oldest running festival in Ohio! It has been a blessing becoming closer with Katelynn Tindall, the 2019/20 Ohio Hills Folk Festival Queen. It’s crazy to think our paths crossed way back in 2019 at the Ohio Gourd Show (and I’m so glad they did)! Your personality is so kind, open, and your smile warms the room. I can’t wait to travel with you in the future — with a crown or not. After a day of exploring the festival, enjoying homemade ice cream, riding the fun slide, viewing the Queen’s window, and more — we had a wonderful Queen’s Parade, with a nice crowd through the small town of Quaker City! We were glad to have Heather join us for an impromptu parade - it was so much fun! Afterwards, we decided to walk through the festival once more, and were so glad that we did. We got to see square dancing, cloggers, and meet so many new people. Once again, I leave tonight with even more gratitude for the Millersport Sweet Corn Festival, and the world that I get to live in. ... See MoreSee Less

Of course you always need more gourds, but what about all those tools and accessories in order to make your piece of art spectacular! Thanks for your help. ... See MoreSee Less
